If you want to protect the info which visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter if you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting plans, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Due to the fact that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the moment it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a secure and reliable website without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other retailer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. The setup is really easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with merely a couple of clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be used for this purpose. This option will save you time and efforts considering that you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secure and any customer will feel certain that their data shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not affect the proper performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your website.
